Jason Isbell has touring steadily since releasing The Nashville Sound in 2017, and now he and the 400 Unit are set to keep rolling well into the summer with another three months of shows that include support from Aimee Mann and Brandi Carlile.

Isbell is currently making a sweep through the southern United States, with a European jaunt set to take place in June. In July he and the band, including wife Amanda Shires, will return Stateside for another 30 newly announced summer tour dates. Those gigs will commence July 5th at Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the first of more than a half-dozen festival dates that will also include Newport Folk Festival.

The tour’s first stand-alone show comes 12 days in when Isbell plays Huber Heights, Ohio with Hiss Golden Messenger, one of several artists to pop up in the opening slot along the way. Mann will be there for a half-dozen dates, Carlile for three of them, while Aaron Lee Tasjan, Marie Lepanto, John Moreland, Communist Daughter, and Shires herself will also appear as openers at other shows. The last of the new dates is at Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina on September 28th.

Isbell, who has already announced an appearance at the opening concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum’s new Outlaws & Armadillos exhibit on May 25th, plays Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida on April 17th.
